Hi Everyone,

When we face challenges, we sometimes feel defeated because our wrong programming is still
controlling us. We are conditioned, still in the habit of not believing in ourselves, so we see this
challenge as a great problem that we cannot overcome and don't even want to face.
Whether the problem overcomes us, or whether we rise up to overcome it, depends on our attitude towards it. How do we see this obstacle? How do we mentally approach it? The answers to these questions will determine whether this obstacle takes us down or makes us grow and defeat it.

We must see this as a "challenge" not as a "problem". The word "problem" conjures up visions of defeat and struggle. But a "challenge" is something to be overcome. It draws the best out of us.
"Problems" can make us depressed. "Challenges" inspire us to grow. It starts in the mind. They are challenges - not problems. They make us better. They are opportunities for improvement. We can use them to our advantage. Challenges train us in a new area we need to overcome.
All great achievers take this approach to obstacles and they carry on growing and achieving as a
When a challenge comes along, you must remind yourself of your identity and potential. You are a Winner, an Achiever, an awesome person with great potential to do incredible things with your life.
Make a decision that you will use this challenge to grow and improve.
This challenge has come along to help you become a better person and train you in a new aspect to overcome.
Furthermore this is an opportunity to prove to the world and to yourself that you are an achiever.
The truth is that without obstacles we cannot grow. They are challenges. Not problems. They
make us better. They are opportunities for improvement. They are the keys to releasing our
When challenges come your way, use a key phrase to set your mind up to face the challenge
constructively with a winning attitude. Use words such as ‘No problem’ or 'How fascinating'. Here’s my favourite: “Man that’s exciting.”
When I’ve just received a speeding fine, I say: “Man it's exciting!” When I’ve lost a sale, “Man that’s exciting!” When my kids are driving me up the wall, “Man that’s exciting!” Am I excited? NO!! But I’m setting my mind up to face the challenge constructively with a winning attitude.
I don’t want to shout and curse, mope and be miserable, just making things worse by a destructive reaction. I want to find solutions, move forward and get through this challenge the best way possible.
This really works. It will feel strange at first. But keep trying it. Soon you will find that the mind key works for you too.
For example: When I lose money due to a traffic fine or making a bad financial decision, I say:
“Man that’s exciting! I'll just have to make more money.”. I am telling myself that I believe in myself.
It is easy to become despondent when things don't go our way. We simply need to make a
decision to apply what we know can work, to help us overcome.
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale tells us that as long as we are alive we will have some challenges.
It’s a sign of life.

Be all you can be.
